Briefly compare and contrast structuralism and behavioralism. How did structuralism influence the creation of behaviorism?

This week you read and learned about Titchener’s structuralism. As an approach, structuralism attempted to break down consciousness into elements of consciousness for study. It assumed that studying these parts of consciousness would lead to an understanding of the whole.

  • Analyze the limitations and strengths of the method of studying consciousness in parts.
  • Identify and discuss one of the main criticisms of structuralism.
  • Briefly compare and contrast structuralism and behavioralism. How did structuralism influence the creation of behaviorism?
  • How has structuralism impacted psychology today? As you consider this question, keep in mind the history and culture of the period in which Titchener practiced compared to your understanding of psychology today.

Write an essay that is 3-5 pages in length. Remember to support your arguments with information drawn from the online content, the textbook, and other credible, scholarly sources to substantiate the points you are making.  Apply APA standards for writing and citations to your work.

**Hint: a useful article for comparing and contrasting structuralism with behavioralism is found in the AUO library and referenced in your textbook:
